My $25 Bike

I bought this old mountain bike off a lady for $25. I just liked the green and yellow/orange look. There wasn’t a hole lot else other than the colour and vintage frame that I liked about the bike, but I knew I could make it into something I would love with a little effort. So …

The Missing Puppy Pictures!

On January 6th I posted a story about our road trip to Victoria to drop off some puppies. See that post here. There was actually a bunch of pictures that went with that story. I just noticed that the pictures never got published with the story! WordPress has been a little weird for me these …

And Then There Were 3

We piled 3 puppies and one mom dog into the car and set off for Vancouver Island. The plan was to drive to Vancouver, catch a ferry and land in Nanaimo, BC where we would meet the new owners of 2 of the puppies (Dora & Cliff). Then we would head off to Victoria with …

Another Wonderful Christmas

Christmas 2021 was a beauty! We still got three puppies and some family dropped in to join in the festivities. Obviously my kids were up nice and early to open their Christmas gifts. I told them the night before not to wake me up before 7am (because I say up pretty late with the puppies). …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

Newfound Beach

I knew I had to take my dog for a walk and I kind of wanted to get the kids out of the house for a little bit too. However I was not about to just take everyone walking around the neighbourhood as we usually do because noticed a lot more people walking down the …

Raymer Christmas Concert

Last night was the boys school’s Christmas concert. Usually these things are fun just to see how cute the kids are, but this year was a real joy to watch. To watch my two boys having so much fun in their new school with their new classmates made me so happy. You could see on …

Easy Adventure with Cam

My son Cameron and I decided to go on a little adventure yesterday afternoon. I asked my older son Joshua to come, but he wasn’t in the mood. So off the two of us went. Cam is the perfect candidate for this type of adventure, because I had no plans on where exactly we were …

Happy Halloween

My brother Robbie and I took the kids out for little tick or treating tonight. It was little cold for what we were wearing, but the kids had a blast as they always do! I always enjoy taking the kids out on Halloween and this year did not disappoint. Joshua (in the emoji mask) was …

Christmas 2018

Christmas is without a doubt my favourite time of year! Hmmm, well hold on, summer is, but I really love Christmas haha. Anyhow, we just hung around our house this year and it was wonderful. My 2 kids had a blast and I think my wife Michelle had a nice time too. After spending the …

Instagram vs WordPress

I keep falling off my blogging regimen these days and I put a lot of the blame on Instagram! I think I have wrote about this before, but it just rings so true it is hard to avoid. I wonder how many other people feel this way? For me, I get a lot more interaction …

1st Day of School

Well my 2 boys are off to school again! (1st grade & 3rd grade). It’s always fun taking the kids to their first day of school. I couldn’t get these guys to stay still for a picture together though! They were too excited to get to their friends. Next year I’ll plan that part a …

Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in …
